SSL and multiple mail server aliases

Postby altimage » Sun Dec 11, 2005 5:18 pm

In our old email system, before zimbra, I had a couple clients that who we gave custom mail server names. For example, the actual mail server was mail.alternateimage.com. For one client, we setup mail.daytonabeachcvb.org and just pointed it in the DNS to the real server, mail.alternateimage.com.
Now that we're using Zimbra and have a real (not self signed) SSL certificate, I'm wondering how to accomplish having Zimbra recognize an SSL cert for both domains.
I didnt install our SSL cert the "real" way with zminstallcert, I just edited the main.cf file in postfix (it seemed the least troublesome path). Will using some of the built in zm cert tools allow multiple certs like this?
thanks,

altimage

We're tracking virtual domains as an RFE right now.
What are you using the certs for? IMAP/POP, or HTTPS? Currently, our command line tools only handle one cert - I'll have to dig into postfix docs for info on multiple certs, if it even supports it. Our IMAP/POP/HTTPS server is going to need some work to handle this.

We're doing SSL just with smtp. I'll look through the postfix docs too and post here if I find anything.

It looks pretty easy. Its something that you do when generating the certificate, not any special configuration for postfix. I guess you'd have to get a new certificate every time you added a new alias. Here's some instructions:
